Consultation objectives

Every year, Statistics Canada and other departments and agencies collect data from numerous surveys. As the amount of data gathered increases, Statistics Canada and others have introduced infographics to help Canadians understand key information derived from the data.

In October 2017, Statistics Canada will conduct usability testing of infographics in order to obtain feedback from users. This round of usability testing will also include infographics produced by the Canadian Space Agency.

Consultation methodology

Statistics Canada will conduct in-person usability consultations. Participants will be asked to complete a series of tasks and to provide feedback on the selected infographics.
